Axora has launched the world’s first digital transformation community for the energy and metals and mining sectors.
The two sectors are responsible for most of the world’s resource production, crucial for powering the global economy and the green energy transition. The Axora Community will connect industry innovators, share the latest market research on key digital trends, and initiate thought-provoking debates to help solve some of the biggest challenges facing these industries today.
“Professionals in these two sectors face some of the world’s most dangerous environments while having to safely satisfy production demand and hit sustainability targets,” said Ritz Steytler, CEO, Axora at the launch event at the Gherkin in London. “By harnessing digital innovation, paired with knowledge sharing and collaboration, industry leaders can ensure worker safety, reduce environmental impact, and improve return on investment. That’s why we started the Axora Community.”
Axora’s two recent reports, ‘Innovation Forecast: Mining and Metals’ and ‘Innovation Forecast: Energy’, revealed that 99% of senior decision-makers at energy and metals and mining firms across the world needed a global digital transformation community. The Axora Community will include metals and mining, and energy industry professionals as well as technology providers, associations, and academics. It has been set up with the help of 10 founder members, senior professionals from leading companies including Teck Resources, Kinross Gold Corporation, Vale, and ArcelorMittal Europe.
“The energy and mining sectors have embraced digital transformation for some time, but there is still much room for improvement to ensure they fully realise the benefits of key growth drivers like AI, advanced analytics, and automation,” said Peter Stegmaier, founding member, Axora Community and chairman, CLQ Global. “For the first time, industry innovators will have a forum for information on digital solutions, can gain insights into how other industries are tackling similar challenges and learn best practice from their peers.”
The Axora Community will host exclusive webinars, invite-only roundtables, and access to live Q & A sessions with industry experts around the world. It will initially focus on the metals and mining sector and will expand to cover the energy sector at the end of this year.
